You can be a guinea pig!
So, I got this email from a researcher who’s looking for libertarians to respond to a study:
I am conducting research on ideology and public opinion. Most studies on public opinion ask subjects whether they are liberals or conservatives. Options to identify as “libertarian” (or anything else) are almost always left out. To say that libertarians are underrepresented in academic research wouldn’t be enough; they aren’t even given a chance to identify themselves as such. Therefore, I would like to include libertarians in one of my studies regarding opinions of candidates and their policies. To do this, I need to seek them out through blogs and websites. I was wondering if you would be interested in posting a link to my online survey on your site or in an email distribution.
Some important things to know about this survey:
-All responses are 100% anonymous. There is no way for me to link any identifying information to the survey responses.
-The survey has been cleared by an Institutional Review Board at Stony Brook University. It satisfies all the requirements for a study that uses human subjects.
-It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete
-It does not seek to promote any kind of ideological agenda

If it’s something you feel like you want to participate in, please feel free. I took it. Seems harmless.
